Caffe Nero

So, given that ‘literally’ now means ‘figuratively’, as well as ‘literally’ (if you’re confused, read this ), am I to assume that ‘everyday’ now means ‘every day’, in addition to ‘everyday’?  Given the number of companies misusing it, you’d think so.

Once again, for the cheap seats – ‘everyday’, without a space, means ‘ordinary’ or ‘commonplace’.  It’s not a synonym for ‘daily’.  That’s expressed as two words; ‘every day’.

So, Caffe Nero, you’re essentially saying that your pastries are nothing special.

    Having eaten their pastries, I can confirm they are indeed ‘everyday’.

    I’m not sure if they’re everyday every day, as I have not yet felt the urge to buy another expensively mediocre croissant.
